There are many ways to design the walls of your baby’s nursery. You can paint, wallpaper, decorate with wall stickers and much more!
Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways to decorate the nursery walls. Turquoise is a wonderful color for nursery wall decor and was chosen as Pantone’s color of the year for 2010. Mix it with chocolate brown or baby pink! Other fun paint colors are yellow which goes great with blues and greens to create a fun bright look. You can also pair it with cream or brown to soften it up. If you want to go with traditional blue for a boy or pink for a girl, try new exciting shades of blue or lilac.
Wallpaper comes in all sorts of cute themes, patterns and colors. Since wallpaper can be expensive, you should consider how long it will last. Cowboy or princess wallpaper is cute but you may grow tired of looking at it for years on end. You may want to consider wallpapering in simpler patterns and neutral colors to allow for future redecorating without redoing the wallpaper. Otherwise, simply wallpaper only one wall and paint the rest, thereby leaving your options open.
Wall stickers are a great room decorating idea for nurseries. They are removable so you can change them as your baby grows. They come in all sorts of design and sizes, and you can even find ones that will cover an entire wall. Wall stickers come with all sorts of baby themes, such as animals, trees, the alphabet and more!
Decorating with stencils is a wonderful room decorating idea. Stencils have hollow spaces that you can fill with color to easily paint designs on your nursery walls! The options are endless: there are stencils to create flowers, numbers, rainbows, animals and more.
An easy budget-friendly nursery wall decor idea is to tear out and frame pictures from old children’s books. These large and colorful pictures can look great on any nursery wall and are free! Match the picture and the frame to the colors you’ve chosen to decorate your nursery for a stylish and coordinated look.
